for me the gherkin is undoubtedly the number 1 best skyscraper in europe and quite possibly the world's most visually pleasing building, every detail is perfect, there's nothing in the architect's brief that couldn't have been done better

Yeah, this ministry building is really scary. Not so visually pleasing, though. I much more like the Moscow University sister.
